Broadway favorite Josh Groban (Sweeney ToddThe Great Comet) will host this year's Jimmy Awards, set to be held at Broadway's Minskoff Theatre June 24. The annual event recognizes the best in high school musical theatre performers, with past winners including Andrew Barth Feldman and Renée Rapp.

"We are delighted that multi-platinum recording artist and two-time Tony Award nominee Josh Groban will host this year's Jimmy Awards," says Broadway League Interim President Jason Laks in a statement. "As both an accomplished artist and advocate for arts education in his own right, we are thrilled to have him join us in celebrating the achievements of, and giving inspiration to, high school musical theatre students across the country, including the over 100 student nominees performing on stage that night."

“I am excited to be the host for the 15th annual Jimmy Awards!," adds Groban. "The dedication and immense talent of these nominees are truly inspiring. Arts education holds a dear place in my heart, and its profound impact is clearly showcased through these young talents each year at the Jimmy Awards."

This year's ceremony will stream for free beginning at 7:30 PM via the Jimmy Awards official Facebook and YouTube channels. The stream will also be available on Playbill.

The Jimmy Awards honor the best in high school musical theatre performers from across the country, ultimately bestowing the title of Best Performance by an Actor and Actress to two students. This year's ceremony will feature 102 nominees selected from more than 100,000 participating students across the country.

Presented by the Broadway League Foundation and named in honor of the late producer and theatre owner James M. Nederlander, the Jimmy Awards see nominees partaking in a week of events, workshops, and master classes with industry professionals. The week culminates in the ceremony itself, a performance held on a Broadway stage at which the nominees compete for the top titles.
